Did God create dinosaurs? Did they really walk upon the earth? Can you explain why it was never mentioned in the Holy Bible?
His Grace Bishop Youssef:
We know that dinosaurs existed. Therefore, yes! God had created them. The Holy Bible says “So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kind and every winged bird according to its kind….” (Gen 1:21). Here, “great” does not refer to ferocious and man eating creatures as Greek mythology portrays. When created, Great creatures were not enemies to be feared; but were part of God’s good creation to be appreciated.
I encourage you to read about the questions asked. If you combine your quests with search in the Holy Scriptures, you will get answers. Discussions are a good beginning. Follow them up with reading the Holy Bible with your friends; topping them up with prayers from the Agpeya.
